“...they want to take guns away from the law-abiding citizens,.."
The most perfect example of if you repeat something often enough, many will believe it.
The more gun lovers repeat this, the more out of touch with reality and hysterical they seem.

Even though he got the better of a couple LEOs, and legally, I'd like nothing more than to see him frog-marched for this.

Nice. "Justice" based on fears, doubts and assumptions. You two reveal how little thought you put behind your words. Thanks (again) for sharing.

dan, +1. I would add that plagiarism, even in Letters to the Editor, should justify banishment.

Brought to you (or taken away, as it were) by the same faceless, mindless, tone-deaf monolithic developing machine that gave us the now well-traveled Stanford Mansion fiasco (hey, where's that Tilted Kilt Family Fun Center we were promised?).

Nice bit of fluff there, DG.
While drugs (one addictive behavior) are illegal everywhere, but especially within 1000' of a school, it's somehow OK (Right Phil?) to encourage school sanctioned trips to the actual grounds of gambling casino (another addictive behavior).
Hopefully they, like apparently our local government, won't see the 'forest for the trees'.

Class field trips to the Casino. As if this wasn't deep enough into Bizarro World.
And where's Vonnegut when we need him?!?

Mon Dieu, Will1960!
It took 2 minutes of searching to find that "Executive Summary" was drafted by an industry consultant named Environmental Resources Management under contract to TransCanada. Another consultancy under contract to TransCanada prepared the initial draft of the document:

"Cardno Entrix, another private consultancy, was contracted by TransCanada to handle the State Department’s initial draft of the environmental impact statement, the Department’s hearings on the pipeline, and even its Keystone XL website."
I'm lifting this information from an admittedly left-leaning website, ThinkProgress, but the facts are easily verified and just go to the point that this industry, as well as it's relationship with our government can. not. be. trusted.
What's the answer? For me and millions of others like me it's to acknowledge the needs of our carbon-based culture but move toward a cleaner solution to our energy needs. No one I've heard in the MainStream is saying shut off the spigot now! But support of these pipelines, and and this industry needs to be far more restrained. I'm guessing most of those incidents on the wiki page were touted as 'the most studied and scrutinized pipeline project(s) in history'. Right. And Lucy yanks the football again.
